Obaby App Review

OBaby App Review

A great photo app if you’re expecting, or already have a bundle of joy in your life! We’re smitten with the iPhone app Obaby, by the brilliant creators who also brought the popular app Over to life. It allows you to add some fun, and artistic looking text or doodles to your images with just a few swipes. The app of course is themed — all of the options are either pregnancy, baby, or family related.

The app is just $0.99 on iTunes, and includes a ton of in app purchase options for the same price. Once you have it up and running, you can start creating! Fire it up, and grab an image from your photo roll, or snap a new one. You’ll be automatically directed to a crop screen that allows you to select from various aspect ratios, or you can click skip and continue on.

Keep moving forward and you’ll come to a screen with different categories  — dates, doodles, borders, pregnancy, first year etc. Choose the option that suits you best, and surf around to find the doodle or saying you love most. You can add as many to your image as you like! We love how they’ve allowed you to choose multiple doodles to store until you’re ready to add them to your photo.

Once you’ve advanced to the next screen, you’ll be able to start putting everything together. Simply click the stored doodles at the bottom of the screen to pull them up. Adjust their sizes, placement, and even color option. If you’ve decided against anything you’ve already added to the image, click it again to delete it from your workspace.

When you’re finished, and ready to share your new creation click the save button in the bottom right hand corner. From here you can automatically share your photo via Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram. We think this is a great way to make a big announcement to family and friends! Have you had the chance to check out Obaby yet? Share your thoughts with us in the comments!
